Life
Life:

Dead in the water
Catfished
Walls caving in
Claustrophobic
Holding my head
Stepping in to
That dark place
Spiralling
Bare feet on hot sand
Don’t touch me
Hold me
No letting go
I need to escape
Disappear Johatsu
Overnight and ghost-like
Was I ever here
Remember my name
Forget me not
Fog on the Tyne
On loop in my head
Damn that Lindisfarne
The madness creeping in
Insomnia
I Can’t catch a wink
I Can’t catch a break
She is Breaking me down
Like a bareback rodeo
Naked to the world
Catching my breath
No air to breathe
Suffocating
She had me by the trachea
Words failing to emerge
Wordless
The poet is dead
Long live the poet
Poetry alive and kick
Freestyling in my mind
Defibrillating
My heart
No matter how deep she
Plunges the knife
No matter the pain
I write
Jiyuu
liberty and freedom
In my native tongue
The heart finding a way
Lost and found
Words my lifeblood
Plasma for the soul
The fourth state
Creativity
The meaning of life
